Excellent Full Set of Ford Patent Auger Bits.
This is an uncommon set of Ford's patent auger bits patented Oct 27, 1891 and sold by the Ford Patent Auger Bit Co. of Holyoke, MA. This bit design is intended for hard jobs boring deep holes in hardwoods. It has a single lead screw and single cutting spur. The forged shank has much thicker twists than any other design resulting in a tough bit that will bore straighter than any other. The twist design also carries chips towards the center of the bit away from the edges of the hole where they can cause friction. These bits are reported to be able to bore a 1in hole 12in deep without having to remove the bit to clear chips. The box is in excellent condition and has the original decals on the inside. The bits are all excellent and in usable condition. The no. 5 bit is a similar design by Whitehouse, but not a Ford. I'll see if I can come up with a proper replacement for the missing bit. It's a very scarce set in great shape

Scarces Stanley 10in no. 918 Brace.
This is an uncommon model- a heavy-duty 10in brace with a ball bearing head but without a ratchet. The lack of ratchet reduces the weight of the brace and gives it a more positive feel while in use. There's just less in the way of the transfer of power between you and the work. It likely dates to ca. 1910 based on the logo. It's in solid user condition and will make a great worker.

The wedge is a replacement but fits quite nicely and holds perfectly. The blade is nice and clean with a lapped back without pitting. The bevel needs to be worked a bit to make it match the sole. The fillet at the bottom of the ovolo has worn down as it does the most work. Otherwise the blade matches nicely. It was made by Holbrook, a Bristol maker who operated from 1799-1849. Based on the features of this plane, Id' say it dates to the later portion of their run. Without much effort it should be a great user and a beautiful profile to add to any working kit of molding planes

It has the look of a plane made by a ship carpenter- they frequently had access to exotic woods and made planes for their own use.The profile it cuts is approx. 1 1/8 in wide by 5/8in deep the leading edge of the profile, which is a sharp almost quirk shape, has some chips, but the sole is in otherwise fine condition.

Early American Cove Plane by J Woods.

The mark is crisp and clean. The plane itself is in excellent condition. The blade is even in super shape with zero pitting. The hole at the front shares an even patina with the rest of the plane which makes me suspect it was a hole to hold a helper handle considering the wide profile of the plane.

Despite being 200+ years old, the plane is in very good condition with only a couple of complaints. The plane cuts an especially nice 1 1/8in wide by 3/4in deep quirk ogee and astragal. The boxed quirk has one chip but is otherwise straight and true. The blade is in fantastic condition and quite clean. It has a hole up front, clearly for a helper handle. Overall it's in decent shape for a plane of its age and it appears totally usable.

Massive A Howland 2in Skew Rabbet Plane.
This is a monster rabbet plane in great shape. The sole has seen a couple of fences added at some point, but is otherwise straight and free of twist. The massive blade is quite clean and has no pitting. It's nice and clean and should make a great worker. It certainly has the mass to keep it moving.

Early 18th Century Ovolo by Lourie, Edinburgh.
William Lourie worked from 1774-1813 according to Goodman. This plane was clearly made on the earlier side of that timeframe. The plane is strikingly short- only 2 3/4in tall, but clearly this is original. The plane also has very flat chamfers along the hand hold and the rounded wedge finial typical of planes made in the 18th century. It cuts a 1/2in wide by 1/4in deep ovolo, a very nice little profile to add to any board edge. The plane is still totally usable and what's left of the blade has no pitting and could still be used. It's definitely the earliest Lourie I've come across and could definitely date to the 1770-1790 time frame.

7/8in Skew Rabbet by Gladwin and Appleton, Boston.
This is a handy sized skew rabbet plane in very good working order. The plane is clean and sound. It's been used a bit and the sole was worn a bit so I quickly jointed it to make it true and to sharpen the working edge. The blade has no pitting and is very sharp. It needs a quick grind to make it even with the sole, but it should be up and running in minutes. Small rabbets like this are indispensable- I use mine frequently.

Excellent Matched Pair of 1in Tongue and Groove Molding Planes.
These planes are marked Adam Hope & Co, London. I can't find this name listed in Goodman which might be the first time ever that the book hasn't had a maker I needed. The planes are very well made, crafted from dense English beech and have a superior mass than most other molders this size. The tongue plane has a steel clad fence. Both planes are in excellent condition with exceptionally clean blades. They will make a fine working pair for larger case work, chests, etc.

Scarce Cincinnati-made Adjustable Rabbet Plane by Miller & Probasco.
This adjustable rabbet has a depth stop and adjustable fence to accurate cut rabbets to a specific depth and width. It does not have a nicker so it's not a moving fillister. According to AWP-IV, this partnership worked in Cincinnati in 1834 and the mark rates (***) for rarity. It's in excellent working condition. The working corner is boxed. The hick blade is nice and clean and has lots of length left. The plane has seen some use but is generally clean and free of damage.

Massive H. Chapin 1in Coming and Going Tongue and Groove Plane.
This is a massive chunk of beech made for cutting T&G joints on 1in thick stock. The plane has seen significant use and has some damage- some chips in the sole, discoloration, and general dings and scratches. It should still be usable, even if it isn't the prettiest. The tongue blade does have some pitting on the back- a back bevel using the ruler trick should make it a non-issue.

Nice 5/8in Coming and Going Tongue and Groove Molding Plane by Child & Pratt, St. Louis.
This plane was made between 1852-59 according to AWP-IV. It cuts a T&G joint centered on 5/8in thick stock but it will work on 3/4in as well. It's in great user condition with two nice clean blades without any pitting. The body is also exceptionally clean and free of damage. The edge on the grooving side is a replacement, but it fits well and locks the blade in just fine. It looks like a fine user in a useful small size to me.

It's thicker than the normal Stanley blade. I have tested the blade adjusters and found that they work well. It looks to be a solid user jointer plane.

It probably won't take more than a quick filing to have it up and running, certainly no major tooth work is needed. It should be a great user rip saw for thinner hardwoods.

Harvey Peace 26in Rip Saw.
This saw was made by Peace in Brooklyn, NY likely between 1888-1900. It was custom etched for J.C. Woolley & Co, of Hartford CT, a hardware dealer who operated around the turn of the century. The etching is light, but the mark is unquestionable. Peace custom etched many saws, most of which were on the lower-mid range of his saw lineup. This one has a patent ground london spring steel blade and a carved apple handle with the patented reinforcing plate, indicating this was a top quality saw, likely a P-47 custom made for this dealer. The saw is a good user rip saw. It has a good length and depth for long use. The plate is straight and has 5 1/2PPI. The teeth are in good shape but need a filing. They should not need extensive work unless you want to reconfigure it. The front of the plate is dark but clean, the back is dark with pitting towards the top and some near the toothline. for a rip saw this isn't a big deal and it should work just fine. It's a nice saw made by an interesting maker.

Interesting Pair of Adjustable Plank Match Planes.
This is a large pair of tongue and groove planes with adjustable fences that allow them to work various widths. The can work boards up to about 1 1/2in wide and as thin as 3/4, though 7/8 is probably more likely their minimum due to the width of the groove. The planes are l4in long which makes them capable of working longer planks. Both have open totes in great shape with no damage. They are unmarked, but the style and the Dwights and French blades (made in Seymour, CT) speak to them being American in origin. The fences lock in place like a plow plane's fence- using keyed wedges. All of the wedges work well, holding the fence fast. They have various dings and scratches, and some repairs here and there, but they appear to be fully functional after some tuning. They also look really great and would be a nice addition to a collection or to your working kit.

Aboslutely Massive 30in Wooden Jointer by Warren, Nashua.
This is about the largest wooden bench plane you'll come across. It's 30in long, over 12lbs, and has a massive 2 3/4in double iron. This is the second 30in jointer I've come across by Warren, who worked in Nashua and surroundings in the mid-late 19th century. This one is in very good user condition with only one cosmetic flaw. Otherwise will will be a fantastic worker. The body is a bit dark and patinated, but it has almost no wear at all. The sole is crisp and clean and the mouth as tight as you'd hope for in a vintage plane. There is no wear around the mouth area. The massive blade was made by Dwights and French in Seymour, CT. It has a lot of good life left and has zero pitting. It's not perfectly sharp, but sharp enough to use. I love big jointers so I had to give this one a try. It's a massive plane, and takes some muscle to get it moving, but once in motion it tends to stay in motion no matter what's in its path. Knots, grain reversals, small woodland mammals, none of them stand a chance. Plus if you use it for and length of time you get a killer core and arms workout, without a gym membership. The only flaw is a cracked horn which was fied with both mechanical fasteners and glue. It's not the prettiest repair, but it seems quite stable to me. It should be a great plane to put to work.
